In october of 2016, the School of Business lost a dear member of the community when Maggie Alvarez, who had been a lecturer and program manager in the Department of Accounting, passed away unexpectedly.

Alvarez, the department’s first program manager, was deeply involved in many initiatives, including serving as chief liaison with accounting firms, helping prepare students for employer interviews, leading fundraising efforts and helping guide master’s programs. “She went out of her way for every single student,” says Anthony Joffre (BBA ’15, MAcc ’16). “She was one of the best resources [and] her door was always open.”

In Alvarez’s memory, the Department of Accounting founded a scholarship fund to benefit graduate students, called the Maggie Alvarez Memorial Scholarship in Accounting. To donate to the Maggie Alvarez Memorial Scholarship in Accounting, visit: bus.miami.edu/maggiealvarez.
